In keeping with its objective to "span the separations created by geography, culture, and the requirements of daily life with a bridge built on the willingness of individuals in search of community, identity, and meaning," the Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies is exploring the development of extended volunteer opportunities for young adult Jews. Similar to the Peace Corps, the proposed program would engage recent Jewish college graduates in long-term service related to international relief and development efforts. This research was designed to gather information about the level of interest,motivations, means, and commitments of prospective participants.
